Legions of Veal

Legions of Veal

Postby Tracie Skarbo » Sun Apr 03, 2011 1:55 pm

Sometimes I see society as a huge herd of cattle in front of TV's, sitting in lazy boys with hooves up and udders pointed to the sky, transfixed by the latest advertising frenzical hypnotism.

Drooling and mindless and sitting in a pool of depression because their bodies are rebelling against the unusual lack of movement. Eyes gobbling up digital depictions of what will make them happy in mind and body if only they have enough money or balls to receive the debt required.

The big boys laugh as they program their armies of chattel with channels of junk food for the mind into more and more blind consumerism, that in turn lines their pockets with more golden thread.

Will we wake up from this self induced slumber? Or will we only be usurped by legions of veal, each individual connected to the next with umbilical cords tattooed with Twitter?
